7:02am
>> lots of debate at lots of dinner tables. also conversation this morning about a couple of new remedies for people with love handles. you would believe you can freeze them off? >> i will try anything. >> we'll talk about that this morning, as well. we begin, though, this morning with politics as the tea party express bowls over more well-known republican candidates in tuesday's primary election. the biggest surprise, the senate primary in delaware. our congressional correspondent nancy cord des is in washington with the latest. nancy, good morning. >> good morning. the most stunning victory yet for the tea party and crushing blow to the republican party leaders who thought vice president biden's former senate seat would be an easy pick-up for them in the fall. not anymore. >> ladies and gentlemen, the people of delaware have spoken. >> reporter: perhaps the biggest upset of the
7:03am
police cal season so far the newcomer unseating veteran mike castle. >> i also want to thank the tea party express. >> reporter: the chair called o'donnell a liar and could not be elected dog catcher and, yes, the tea party conservative defeated the well-known castle, 53 to 47%. o'donnell, a former marketing consultant with a checkered record was a dark horse until two weeks ago until the tea party express barrelled in. an endorsement from sarah pair lin followed. the republican party scrambled fearing this would upset another gop candidate as it already had in utah, alaska, kentucky and nevada. a last-minutes robo call recorded by her former campaign manager -- wasn't enough to turn the tide. >> the last several weeks have been spirited, shall we say. >> reporter: in new hampshire's
7:04am
senate primary the former attorney general was slightly ahead of the tea party-backed lamontagne, in a race too close to call. a newcomer won in new york, defeating well-known candidate rick lazio, in new york's primary for governor. >> i want everybody in the republican party who opposed me to know this. you're welcome to join the people's crusade. >> reporter: but the defeat in delaware really stings for the gop because the moderate castle, who has won in the blue state of delaware ten times was considered a shoo-in to defeat the democrat in the fall. o'donnell was a decided underdog. >> hold onto your hat, folks, we're in for a fight. >> reporter: if republicans don't windle del their chances of winning back the senate are almost non existent. democrats are seizing on this upset to argue the republican party has been taken by the right wing, moderates need not
7:05am
apply an argument they'll take to the fall, harry. >> nancy cordes in washington, thank you. joining us to talk about the primaries and what happens in november democratic strategist tanya acker in los angeles and republican strategist dan better let in austin, texas. good morning to you both. >> good morning, harry. >> dan, talk about this, delaware, kentucky, alaska, utah, one after another after another. are all of these tea party victories good for the republican party? >> well, when you have a situation like with mike castle beat in delaware, it obviously gives you pause because it's going to be very difficult, if not impossible for republicans now to gain that seat in the united states senate. having said that, though, harry, the intensity gap that we're seeing between the two parties this election cycle is mainly being fed by the tea party movement on the republican side. so, net/net, it's still a gain. the prospect of taking over the house of representatives would
7:06am
not happen without this vibrant activity within the tea party. while you'll have these types of anoleys like we saw with mike castle going down last night, net-net, i still think it is a positive thing with long-term consequences -- >> eve karl rove came out and said that will not help us get the seat in the long run. from a democratic perspective, tanya, as democrats watch this unfold with the rancor and derision within the republican party, the tea party really catching fire out there, how do you view it? >> well, i think it really presents democrats an opportunity. i mean, i think they have to be very careful. it is one thing simply to call a lot of these candidates extremists, which i happen to think they are, but i think that the democratic message has to be bigger than. the choice the country is going to be presented with is that between one party that seems to be auditioning for a talk radio show host. you've got folks like sharron angle saying things like take up
7:07am
arms against the government and the democrats want to talk about unemployment benefits and wall street. the voters will have a very clear choice and i think dan is right there, is something of an enthusiasm gap but i think more democrats will be motivated to go to the polls when you hear what some of the tea party candidates are saying. i don't think most of the country wants to repeal the -- >> dan, listening to tan yeah, i wonder if you making a miscalculation as your own peril at, you know, this perceived enthusiasm gap, these people are literally changing the face of a party. dan? >> well, look, i mean, it is a case in the united states senate with some of these candidate races the candidate themselves is going to make a difference whether there's a victory or a loss. but let's not lose historical sight here, that is the first midterm election of a new president is a referendum on that white house and on that leadership. and what we're seeing right now, a rejection of how the governor -- governance by democrats over the last 18 months has taken place both in
7:08am
the white house and united states congress. that's why republicans, while they'll have issues like they are seeing in delaware and other candidates that are not going to represent the entire republican party, the bottom line is that right now, things are shaping up for democrats to be a very long night in november. >> all right. tanya, very quickly, you have to confess, there really is kind of a throw the bums out mentality that has gotten real traction. >> well, i think that that, that movement, that mentality, seems to be a relatively constant in washington but i think what democrats have to do is demonstrate they are interested in governing, not simply coming up with good sound bites for talk radio shows. >> well, we shall see. this is still unfolding, even as we speak. tanya acker and dan bartlett, we appreciate your time this morning. thank you. >> thanks, harry. >> the latest on sarah shourd the american hiker freed by iran after a year in prison. this morning, she is with her

7:10am
illegally. they were all sent to jail. the last time they were seen together in public was in may when their mothers were allowed a brief visit. it was then that shourd announced she and bauer would marry. shourd still in oman this morning hasn't said when she will head home to the united states, where her release was bittersweet for the families of the men who remain in prison. >> just hate to see one coming home. anyway, it was great to see one coming home and hope that shane and josh can follow shortly. >> reporter: but yesterday, in tehran, the news wasn't good. the prosecutor said iran's courts are still preparing to try fattal and bauer for espionage. in the states, state department spokesman p.j. crowley issued a challenge to iran's president mahmoud ahmadinejad. he said release the two men and bring them with you when you come to the united nations in new york later this month.

7:12am
her release or the beginning of talks for her release to give you an indication maybe josh and shane will be home soon? >> well, we know they were three hikers together and they are three innocent hikers together and we are hopeful president ahmadinejad will recognize that, as he has with sarah and let her leave the country. >> cindy, what's one of the first things you think you will ask sarah? >> first, i'll tell her i love her and ask her how shane s. i'll want to hear as much about shane as possible. you know, they have a wedding to plan. so, we need shane out, we need josh out so we can move forward with life. >> what's your major concern right now for your son? >> that he's released. you know, psychologically and physically, he needs to be out of there. my greatest concern immediately is how hard must it have been for shane and sarah to separate and they've become very close to josh, also.
7:13am
the separation of these three must be extremely painful for them. >> i'm sure it is a major concern for you, as well. >> yes, and they are a unit, a very tight unit. and i was very happy to hear that josh and shane could say good guy to sarah and that's a relief because they know that she's free and i'm sure they feel wonderful about that. but, it is, again, their turn, their turn to taste freedom. >> do any of these little things you are learning, they were allowed to say good-bye, the way those things, are any of those signs to you or trying to read the tea leaves a little too much? >> well, it is a humanitarian gesture, i'm very grateful for that, that they josh and shane could say good-bye to sarah. that's wonderful. but, it is time for a release now. it's almost 14 months. cindy and i have not seen josh and shane for almost four months now, no phone calls, no letters since we were in tehran. >> how do you keep going at this point, cindy in. >> we just have to continue on.
7:14am
i feel stronger, more now than ever, to continue this and just get them release sod they can all be with their families. you know, i -- i just -- it's hard to deal with shane not being here but, quitting is not an option and we're going to move forward until it's done. >> good to have both of you with us this morning and look forward to hopefully speaking with you soon when we hear what you've heard from their sons when they are released. thanks again. the rest of the mornings top stories, jeff glor at the news desk. good morning. >> good morning, everyone. an investigation under way this morning into a pilot allegedly drunk who was pulled from the cockpit and arrested as he prepared to take off. our correspondent mark phillips has the latest this morning from london. mark, good morning. >> good morning, jeff. this involves a flight scheduled to fly from amsterdam to newark, new jersey, delta flight number 35 due to fly yesterday. apparently, it had already pushed back from the terminal,
7:15am
preparing for takeoff, when police acting on an anonymous tip boarded the plane and breath thattized the crew and discovered the captain just over the legal limit of alcohol in the blood and so he was pulled off the plane. the flight was canceled, and he was fined about 700 euros or 900 u.s. dollars. that was it as far as the dutch police are concerned. delta air lines, the carrier, has since suspended the pilot and put the rest of the passengers from that flight on other flights. the pilot is a 52-year-old from woodrift, new jersey, as i say suspended by the airline. jeff. >> mark phil lips from london, thank you very much. this morning the american embassy is warning u.s. sit 10/s to avoid this port city saying it received credible information regarding a possible imminent threat there. reggie bush giving back the 2005 heisman trophy. he was ruled ineligible for that season at southern california

the debate continues to rage this morning over charges a female reporter was sexually harassed by members of the new york jets. at the center of the argument a lot are talking about what she was wearing when it happened. her defenders say it doesn't matter. jets players and coaches were unprofessional to her, that's the issue. she told us there was nothing wrong with her outfit and proud of how she looks. in fact many pictures are online which many may deem provocative but does this enter in tuesday clinton portis added fuel to the fire with these commen comments. >> all of a sudden you see a nice woman in the locker room, i think men are gonna tend to turn
7:39am
and look and want to say something to that woman. >> he later apologized. a league official said his comments have for place in the nfl. join us are tara sullivan, sports columnist for a new jersey us in paper and -- you have covered sports in 17 years in locker rooms about every major sport including the jets' locker room. a tough place to be, women have fought hard to be in there. is it something you have to expect as a female reporter no matter how you are dressed? >> absolutely not. it's sad if we are still expecting that. that battle was fought a long time ago whether or not women have a place in the locker room. the law has decided we do. this is how the job is done. when the locker room is opened to the media, it includes men and women and that's -- >> my place of work, a big point for me when one of the players during the incident saturday yelled out to another reporter, not to miss sainz, another
7:40am
intimidating and con saying thatth is our locker room. that's a big issue. for the hour it is open to the media, it is my workplace, as well. >> some people have come out and said, lauren, there is a responsibilities she has, as well. that may be your locker room, a shared workplace at that point but she also has to go this there knowing certain things could take place, maybe she should have dressed a certain way. is that something women have to think about going into a locker room? >> i think it is an interesting question. i personally have never been in an locker room but in newsrooms, you have to dress the part. i think when it becomes distracting, i don't want to blame her and i, you know, i'm not personally involved in the situation, but when it becomes distracting you question is she dressed appropriately? >> how much has to do, too, with american perceptions of what's appropriate some she works for a mexican tv station. we've seen plenty of pictures of her online. perhaps things are done differently on her channel. so, is it okay? >> i agree. i think there is a cultural
7:41am
distinction here. i think think the way these stations operate and it fell to the jets when it got a request for media credentials from this reporter from this station could have done investigation and found out this is nothing new from the station, not the only reporter who maybe acts that way or dresses or chooses to dress in certain ways. i think once they gave her, though, that credential, their players are now responsible to treat her with respect. >> you mentioned you have to dress a certain way, no matter what, in terms of respect and doing your job. is there a double standard? >> yes, it is a double standard but i do think, well, looks always play but she's also -- she's in entertainment. she's not just a reporter, she's on tv. and we have to consider at that moment in the locker room, she actually -- she wasn't on camera. so, was she dressed appropriately for that situation versus sort of playing the entertainment role of her job. >> has this been overblown a bit? she sat in our studio and told us it wasn't that big of a deal,
7:42am
i heard it and tuned it out and others seemed more bother. >> frankly, if she wasn't as beautiful as is, i didn't think it would be that big of a deal. >> it's an issue for me. i work a lock in locker rooms. the way the jets players were interacting with her i thought was appropriate making her a target of things, to me, maybe she only had to come in once every six months and it blow up and there will be attention but i'm in there every day and if there is an indication that's how jets players or across the nfl when you listen to portis's comments that indication of underlying resentment is an issue to me and the primary issue. >> could there be two issues one being, yes, they need to act better in the locker room, it is inappropriate or also do we need to dress differently? i realize she works for a mexican channel but for an american reporter who goes in there do we need a certain dress code? >> i believe there are two separate issues. i think if you want to open a
7:43am
discussion on appropriate workplace attire in a locker room it wouldn't just be about the women who come in here. i've seen male reporters wearing team jerseys of the team they cover and i find that inappropriate. i'm perfectly open to that. i would not choose to dress that way because in the way i want to do my job i don't feel that would be appropriate but i'm also not standing in judgment of the way others choose to dress. a very difficult and fine line to draw, as you can understand and i'm sure most feel. >> thank you g. to have both of you. i have a feeling a discussion may continue tonight at dinner tables, as well. just ahead the scoop on two new ways to attack those love handles. we are lightening up a little bit. this is "the early show" on cbs.
